    Anyone having yellow tint on their iMac 21 2013? Mine looks yellow compare to my rMBP 15. Should i return it or try to calibrate it? The screen manufacture code is 00000610. LG? Is there a Samsung screen for iMac 21?

    Apparently practically every Mac has a manufacturer ID of 610. It's the model number that counts. My 21.5" iMac was A012.

    Yellow

    Just spent an hour last week on my 21 and yellow tint with Apple support. On top of it, my DVI connection to my Dell UltraSharp, which worked great on my 2007 20", is badly yellowed as well. Apple support has no idea of why.

    I can crank brightness up to almost full in sys preferences but borders and background are still yellow tint.

    Hope there is a solution.

    Same. Is it LG or Samsung?

    Hmm...there's no way to tell. Personally I'm happy with mine though, no complaints whatsoever :)

    Can you clarify? When connecting the Dell monitor to your iMac via DVI, the Dell monitor shows yellow tinges as well??? As in the Dell is getting yellow video signals from the IMac?

    Yes the Dell is getting the full yellow treatment while the Imac can be brightened up.

    Buy a calibrator like a colorMunki or i1. This is the only way to get two screens to match. The brand of screen is not the issue.
